MAY 2017

We had a full house in spite of the cold weather.  It wasn’t raining so everyone was happy.   The Townsmen Car Club helped us this month with Jim Hadley presenting the trophies and Cheryl Chatfield taking their pictures.

Hope everyone enjoyed the evening and it wasn’t too hot.  This is the first time in 5 years that Bob, our leader,  wasn’t able to make it.  Out of town commitment came first.  (Actually it was a car event that is held every 5 years).

 

Special thanks to The Thunderbolts for volunteering to help.

MAY 2016

If you missed the May cruise, you missed a great time.  346 cars were on the street with plenty of people to “ooh” and “aah” over every car.  The weather was perfect.  A nice breeze to keep those Kool cars and Kool people comfortable.

If you weren’t able to attend, we hope to see you in June.

We would like to thank the Townsmen car club for volunteering to be our featured car club.  They chose these very deserving winners:

Dick Kiger

8-3-1922 to 12-6-2015

8-3-1922 to 12-6-2015

 

It is with regret and sadness to inform you we learned of the passing of our friend, colleague and leader, Dick Kiger.

Dick, co-founder of our long-running Cruise Nite, enjoyed a long and full life, particularly when it came to participating and fostering interest not only in the Auburn antique and classic car community but also the aviation community as well.

We plan to pay proper tribute to Dick and his life’s work in the 2016 Cruise Nite program and to dedicate the 2016 season to his memory.

Our condolences are extended to his many friends and associates and assure the Kiger family that the Cruise Nite Committee and its membership stand by to do whatever we can or are asked to do at this time or in the future.

Chuck Butler

Memorial service is being held at the Auburn Airport, 13626 New Airport Rd, Auburn, CA. on Monday January 4, 2016 at 1 pm

You can find his full obituary on the Auburn Journal website

SEPTEMBER 2015

It was another hot summer night in Auburn.  And the heat may have kept the crowds down.  For those that missed it, you missed a really nice commemoration of September 11, 2001.

As you probably remember, September 11, 2001 was on a Tuesday.  There was much discussion as to whether we go on with Cruise Nite or cancel it.  John Knierun and Dick Kiger said “on with the show”.  We were not about to let some fanatics tell us to be afraid.  There was a short remembrance ceremony that night.  Every year since, at the September Cruise Nite we have a ceremony to remember.  It is small with a little music, a color guard and a few speeches by local dignitaries.   If you missed it this year, please plan on attending next year.

Again, we had gorgeous cars this month.  Here are the winners:
